CareWear Project | Volunteer Delaware 50+ Community Partner

The CareWear Project consists of many dedicated members who knit and crochet year round beautifully crafted cold weather clothing and blankets for our county’s most neediest people. Whether it is a veteran who have valiantly served our country, newborns whose mothers are children themselves with few resources, the elderly afflicted with Alzheimer’s, the homeless, those suffering from the complications of aids, or others needing help, the members of CareWear have risen year after year to the challenge of making lives a little better and brighter.

CareWear members meet monthly to turn in their completed items and pick up yarn. Completed items may include adult/children/toddler/baby – hats/scarves/mittens/gloves/booties/sweaters – lap robes/blankets/afghans (M-XL) & chemo caps. Items are then sorted and stored awaiting the yearly distribution which takes place on the last Friday of October and coincides with Make a Difference Day.

  • Knitter / Crocheter – will volunteer to make knitted or crochet items for those in need according to program guidelines/requests
  • CareWear Support – assist staff in the coordination of program meetings, organizing of inventory in preparation for annual distribution and/or entering hours into an electronic database
